Block Bill That Would Severely Restrict Abortion Rights

Target: Representative Brian Bosma, Indiana Speaker of the House

Goal: Demand a block on the bill that would allow fetuses to obtain legal standing in Indiana

A new Indiana law would legally define a fetus as a human being and would press homicide charges on those that end a pregnancy. The law, which is almost set to pass, would create a framework which treats undeveloped fetuses as people. Pro-choice activists say this bill allows the state to take away abortion rights now that the fetus is considered a human being.

While this law is effective in properly sentencing those who kill pregnant women, activists say this law will give lawmakers the chance to undermine the rights of pregnant women everywhere. Not only will this law criminalize abortions, it technically allows for miscarriages to be charged as homicides, which is absolutely archaic. Homicide should be punished, no matter what, but we shouldn’t rewrite law books in a way that restricts women’s choices with their bodies. Demand that this law be stopped in its tracks.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Representative Bosma,

The people of Indiana have not approved of the bill introduced that declares a fetus as a legal human. This bill only serves the interests of pro-life lobbies who seek to restrict women’s healthcare access.

Pregnant women have enough to worry about with restrictive healthcare and now they have to worry about facing a murder charge if they have a miscarriage, which nobody should ever have to go through. Stand with the rest of the country and demand an end to this restrictive legislation.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
